Benjamin Yuen (袁偉豪), who recently broke up with his girlfriend of three years Jennifer Shum (岑杏賢), admitted in an interview that he really wanted to get back together with her.

“I really do want to chase her back,” said Ben when asked if he misses Jennifer. “But I want to give myself more time, and I want to do it with more sincerity. We did get our closure, but I want to do the best that I can, and re-establish trust and confidence.”

According to Jayne Stars, Ben had spent the past three Christmas’s with Jennifer. He recalled, “There was one year where I spent Christmas in a hospital bed, and she was there with me, all night.”

This year, Ben will be spending the Christmas holidays working, as he will be traveling to Shenzhen to film the new TVB drama, Line Walker: The Prelude <使徒行者2>. He will return to Hong Kong on Christmas Eve to attend a function.

Will Ben “make his move” before Christmas Day?

He smiled and said, “I don’t think I’ll even have time to buy Christmas gifts. But at this time, materialistic things aren’t the most important. It’s about the heart and spirit. I hope nature will take its course. I do want to get back together with her, but I want to give myself more time, and give her more sincerity.”

Reporters contacted Jennifer after interviewing Ben, asking for a comment. She said simply, “We are friends now. Let’s leave it to fate. Thank you for the concerns.”

After the Mandy Wong (黃智雯) rumor was disproven, tabloids started pointing fingers at Katy Kung (龔嘉欣) for being the third party in Ben and Jennifer’s relationship.

Katy pleaded innocence, saying, “Both of them already feel bad for getting me involved. Jennifer even apologized to me three times. Ben and I see each other a lot for work, but we do not contact in private.”
